BE the Church
On November 15th, the members of Seguin First United Methodist Church won’t be sitting in the pews in the church sanctuary. Rather, we will be serving in various places throughout the community – BEING the church.
The Faith in Action program was initiated in 1983 with support from The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and today there are more than 600 local Faith in Action programs operating in communities across the nation. Last year was the first year that our church went through the community somewhat like a colony of ants (my vision of us last year), volunteering and helping in various areas of the community and surrounding area. At the end of the day, these faithful volunteers limped into the church parking lot for a barbeque dinner prepared by men of the church. Tired and weary – but joyful and with full hearts – knowing the hard work was helpful to so many.
